The technology of Google Glass is finding an increasingly larger role in Medical Education.  From watching surgical procedures in the OR, to watching procedures in a simulation scenario, Glass is finding a bigger place


Some say Google Glass will revolutionize Medical Education.  At UC at Irvine, Google Glass was given to five students, and that number will increase shortly.


while the wow factor was just
something amazing it was it was as though
I in the past I had dreamed for iPad
I had jokingly envisioned what we might do in the future
with things and all the sudden I was looking at the futures I
continue to be blown away by this technology
well I think medical education is always tethered to how you deliver
healthcare not its technology like this then it’s going to become imperative to
how we deliver care
therefore we need to maximize its value in its role in education
I can see immediately where class could be used
in medical education Google glass can
in there are incredible possibilities within medical education
certainly within my period where we should teach doctoring
skills mom the beauty either
student wearing glasses the instructor where glasser even
are cameras patient where in class in fact we have done
delivering bad news scenarios where news
built-in cameras are recorded instance a given p and that’s a fact
cancer is back sprint
but if you could imagine mountains
marine were you can be able to see patients who have you
how they perceive it the doctor how many times
look away from you in the middle the Think You Can we think maybe got a
little bit more difficult
improve in doing through courses in the example we can actually see where
their eyes are focused
In the humans for example simple things with the dominant man where
the idea company is having we’re trying to look at paine
my eyes are actually on the abdomen there on the patient on
here at the University of Arizona College Mosab index there’s a
total integration assimilation all yours another Costco
which is unique in around the country in addition the
there’s a with very large insemination Clemson
for the simulation deaths are taking place
were actively exploring study how best to integrate Google Voice
and the simulation experiences make a mint so much more
report productive were catching on a very nice way
1a love up our students
doing things and knowing things before they actually do them on patients
but now you take a technology like this and you have a student doing something
in the simulation arena
but now you have an assessment tool you are looking at
the the the activity that the students doing literally
through the student supplies which we have never been able to do before
we’re gonna know exactly where their eyes land initially what their thought
process is what the decisions are
where their eyes then go now we can start to fine-tune
heparin as well now when you’re there
but get Google glass has a potential to
revolutionize medical education by delivering these technologies
into the simulation experience not only here
but hopefully globally we are taking the first step now
purge the realization about potential all
I immediately thought about how many people
could through with a laugh have the anatomy lab experience it more difficult
to get
will body donors for anatomy lab so in certain countries have actually
a really finite resource how great here doctors in training
nurses in trainin other allied health professionals in other countries
could take anatomy course through watching Google+ it’s such an invaluable
experience toothy
anatomy in real time and also to have the ability to ask question
at the professor while that professor is walking
per il and regional anatomy am
that would be really great could be able to reach out not only locally is well
certain parts tho are be but also be on math teal
you know different countries abroad each have our instructors offer such a unique
Philly and a few were able to watch videos
and either real time or have them as archive then
I think that would be an invaluable studying resource for them
than really the there’s no limit to what could
be done in terms that teaching anatomy using the Google glass
but I’ve always been a firm believer that that Nana this
Nana Bauer I intellectual property and how we educate should be proprietary
so we share our curriculum i think thats
absolutely the way we should the working with everybody worldwide
not just in our own little cluster environment I think we were all
not only in fast resources now I think this becomes and driver
to take other technologies that we have at our disposal rather than trying to
take a technology and fitting it into other things we’re doing I actually
think this is going to be kind of a centerpiece
around which we start to build many of the other facets of our technology that
we can use McChrystal monopolies and health care delivery
Kinnaman for us you know in medicine is sibling in and lawn more the
the day nothing closer to the nation and the patient still
all walk is we trying to bring point-of-care technology
in the case of the personalized medicine closer
again to the cleaning so plus is really saying here the
combination with the Google glasses that kuwaiti get we’d 0
you know a lot of powerful and the machine time on the computer
on the interface Wiley mom
think that be enticed me to come in joining the faculty
them to bring the school you with a clean slate
and that’s pricey and the school truly being more on the cutting edge
up education into I’m looking at new technologies and how the perhaps you can
be applied
in medical education it’s always been part of the culture of our campus
to think outside the box the things creatively
and really take advantage of new technologies our leadership has always
supported the faculty and being created in
and trying new applications a technology in the classroom
in a very established medical center it’s hard to invoke change for this
particular campus in the school
and the City were very nimble were very fast I’ll
we have the perfect environment within which to do we have the perfect
partners within which to do it we don’t get a new piece of technology like
Google class immediately try to figure out how it fits in the past
we look and say we don’t have a past were inventing the future
